Stupid Media Tricks

Glenn Greenwald says it best. Tom Tomorrow draws it best. We're drawing lipstick on pigs as the world passes us by.

Stupid Media Tricks

Glenn Greenwald says it best. Tom Tomorrow draws it best:

We're putting lipstick on pigs as the world passes us by.

Of course, there could be another explanation. Thomas L. Friedman has one: We're a country that votes from the gut. And Obama's playing it a little too cool.

UPDATE: Another country heard from. Former Inky colleague Terry Samuel, writing for The Root, puts it this way:

Right now it is not about the American people getting it. It is about Obama getting it. He's getting hit over the head with a baseball bat and looking like he wants to file an amicus brief about it.

Sounds like he needs a pep talk from Sean Connery's character in The Untouchables.
